  • Gudrun Buffa
    Veterinary Assistant

    I am originally from Germany. My husband Chris was stationed in there with the Army when we met. We soon after moved to Michigan then married and have been here for over 23 years. We have 2 children, Jonah and Emily. Jonah recently graduated from CMU and Emily attends Northwood University. My family also includes 2 dogs (Lilly and Josie) and 2 cats (Lynx and Cammie), all four are rescues. I have worked as a Radiology Technologist for 9 years and have volunteered at the Capitol Area Humane Society for several years and in January 2020 decided to combine my medical experience and my love for animals and joined DeWitt Veterinary Hospital as a Veterinary Assistant. In my spare time I love to hike, bike, camp, read, craft, and just enjoy our great Michigan summers, as long as they last, as well as spending quality time with my family (especially my fur babies).  *Pictured in lower right.
